ABOUT THE BOOK:

The book titled "What is Buddhist Studies?" resembles a mirror that reflects some outlines of the most important and demanding topic on the academic study of Buddhism, subsuming both Buddhist doctrine and philosophy. The aforesaid term applies to both the traditional and scientific studies. It also applies to the academic field, which is a subset of religious studies, and is distinct from Buddhist Philosophy or Buddhist theology. Hence, Buddhist Studies covers the study of the five major and five minor sciences. These sciences are interconnected like spider-web. Each one of them has its own importance and significance. Each one of them is the supplement for each other and it is done by overcoming some specific discordant factor. Seeing the importance and significance, a plan was made to bring out a publication containing the outlines of some important and significant subject of Buddhist Studies introduced by Gautama the Buddha and his authorized disciples like Nagarjuna, Asanga, Vasubandhu, Aryadeva, Santindeva and so on. Accordingly, works were carried out to collect matters for the publication. The entire matter of the said publication has been abridged in fifty articles. which have mostly been prepared by the author while few have been contributed by the eminent Buddhist scholars.
